making a caketopper stand with a stool of a lid
this cupstand is an other ,version. i have try to make them all differend because thats what i like the most.
this figure was really pretty and when i had maded this one i thought this must sit on a tiny chair bench or ... stool
so i have make the tute too of making the stool.
You can use things that you've already then you have only to look at the steps of the cup.
because everything has drying time, i have when i had to wait, i started in between to the cupstand, and when i had to wait there i jumped back to the the stool and so on.
so read the tute, and you can do the same or let tsome parts away.or make at first all the parts .
i hope you like it and that you like that you only have to use the things you have around the house already. its all about scraps tjhat will become a nice place on here.
so i dind't have to be expensive. and its fun too think what you can use to add, and found all your scarps again to use .
i have tryed to recycle too, the cup is from a dessert but when you uses this kind of material , like the carton of boxes it must be clean!
the time is without drying time!

Hope you like it and have much fun, be creative!;-D

    In between make 4 holes in the lid for the legs.
    Do this with a candle and outside , because it smells awefull!!! and not healty to inheal !!!
    Or by a open window i used a paperclip a big one holding the paperclip with a plier! when you melt the holes! It is smart to set aside a bowl with water, You can put the paperclip in the water when you have maked the holes, the paperclip is very hot, so you cant lay him on wood or other things at that time! Its a safety solution.
    (they are semd to me from my friend Sheila. Awesome!!! thank you so much for all the differend kinds of them!)
